Heston Blumenthal to open airport restaurant at Heathrow's T2

Heston Blumenthal has announced plans to open a restaurant in Heathrow's Terminal 2 next year.

The new air-side restaurant, which is yet to be named, will showcase the Michelin-starred chef's passion for nostalgia and celebrate his pride of all things British when it opens next June, following the completion of the £2.5b terminal.

The menu, which is still a work in progress, is expected to take inspiration from Blumenthal's television series, In Search of Perfection as it strives to celebrate popular British dishes.

Commenting on the new "incredible" project, Blumenthal said: "There are so many different elements to consider when people are travelling. We want to deliver a broad spectrum of easy to enjoy, familiar dishes from fish and chips to pizza.

Muriel Zingraff-Shariff, Heathrow's retail director, added: "The brand new, £2.5bn terminal will not only showcase the best of the UK's art and engineering talent, but also one of its greatest culinary minds.

"This new restaurant will introduce a unique and original dimension to the airport eating experience at Heathrow."
